NLO: Inch Garvie [name: NT 137 795]

Forth Bridge [name: NT 135 795].

Montrose, 25th Dec. A telegram received 21st Dec., states that the TYNE, Inglis, from Queensferry to Charlestown, in ballast, had, in rounding the Firth, missed stays and gone ashore on Inchgarvie, where she was expected to become a total wreck. Part of the cargo of this vessel was much damaged when she arrived at S. Queensferry, from this port on the 17th.

Source: LL, No. 15,512, London, Tuesday, December 29 1863.

Dundee, 28th Dec. Accounts received in Montrose of the 26th Dec., state that the TYNE (schr.), had struck on Inchgarvie, but got off on the 23rd Dec., and again grounded on the rocks under Oliver Cromwell's Battery, where, until the 25th, she still lay in a very perilous position.

Source: LL, No. 15,512, London, Tuesday, December 29 1863.

NMRS, MS/829/72 (no. 10516).

The location assigned to this record is essentially tentative.

The loss of this vessel is not cited by I G Whittaker (1998), presumably accepting her successful recovery.
